Eagle Valley Natural Wonders

lake

Beautiful mountain scenery and a great year-round climate make the Eagle Valley an excellent choice for vacations and weekend getaways. There is a variety of recreational activities all year – including skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice fishing, hiking, rafting, lake and stream fishing, golfing, biking and camping.

Special events include the Eagle County Fair and Rodeo, traditionally held in late July and early August. Since 1939, Eagle County has presented the annual nine-day Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) rodeo, which has become a western tradition. Over 14,000 spectators and 3,000 participants from across the country take part, and the fair provides a showcase for local residents.

No lift ticket or special event is needed to enjoy the best part of Eagle Valley – the natural wonders.

The incredible scenery includes the Sawatch Range. This 100-mile-long mountain range extends from the Eagle River to Marshall Pass, and has fifteen 14,000-foot summits. Castle Peak is also visible from Eagle, and the 11,275-foot peak resembles, of course, a castle.

Wildlife is abundant in the area, and there are large deer and elk populations, bighorn sheep, eagles, bear and mountain lions. The deer and elk migrate down from the mountains, often into the subdivisions of Eagle and Gypsum, while bighorn sheep are spotted at the base of the Glenwood Canyon range of Interstate 70.
